Ad­mirable stunt­woman

San Francisco Chronicle - - FROM THE COVER -

Re­gard­ing “Kitty O’Neil — deaf stunt­woman and record speed racer” (Nov. 9): Thank you for the re­mem­brance of Hol­ly­wood stunt­woman and rocket-fu­eled ve­hi­cle speed racer Kitty O’Neil. It’s amaz­ing that O’Neil achieved her suc­cess per­form­ing stunts in movies and on tele­vi­sion, as well as set­ting women’s land-speed record, even though she was deaf and had to over­come other health is­sues.

Her ac­com­plish­ments are a po­tent re­minder that our so­ci­ety should pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for ev­ery­one to be suc­cess­ful, re­gard­less of their gen­der or phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties.
